*This week’s notes: Jay, who runs the Southampton Page on Twitter, and who is the official partner of the show, was due to be on this week. We had the recording time set pretty late and then he got ill. I’ve been meaning to find a way to get this episode back out, and now seems like the perfect time, especially since Jay was the one who set it up in the first place.

  • Hojbjerg and Team News- 1:00:51

  • End Credits- 1:13:46

Chris Hutchings joins me this week to chat about Saints. We look back on how he became a fan, how he began commentating, escorting fans from around the world around St. Mary’s, and working for OPTA. We also discuss the likelihood of Hojbjerg leaving, what that means for the team, Project Restart, football without fans, and more. More than anything, it was just a fantastic opportunity to spend some time learning about Chris and his connection with the club. I’m finding more and more during this COVID19 break that the people who support and work around the club, and their stories, are, at least to me, more interesting, rewarding, and engaging than complaining about a misplaced pass or Cedric’s lack of back-post defending. I hope you enjoy the show. You can get in touch with Chris to talk football, stats, or anything else, @hutchfm on Twitter.

Ep. 174- From the Dell to the Dellivery, Our Time to Chine, with Graham Copp

Show Timeline:

  • Intro Music- 0:00
  • Intro- 0:54
  • Graham Copp- 3:09
  • The Isle of Wight- 8:29
  • League Cup Finals- 15:19

  • Listener Questions- 44:22
  • The JPT Final Journey- 54:24
  • End Credits- 1:01:56

For the last few weeks, it’s been a mixture of confusion and uncertainty, and even with the PL’s announcement of potentially resuming on June 1st, it’s still largely that way. Until we know more, we’ll just stay alert.

This week we’re avoiding most of that and diving into trips to the Dell, Ferry rides, keeping up with Saints from abroad before the internet was a thing, cup finals won and lost, and more with Graham Copp. Graham is a lifelong Saints fan from the Isle of Wight and who now lives near Washington DC. He’s written for the Ugly Inside and seen Saints up and down England and in the US. It was a real pleasure to be able to chat with him about his memories of the team, and just reflect and reminisce on some of the moments he’s enjoyed (and some of those he didn’t) for a while.

I hope you enjoy the chat. If you’d like to get in touch with Graham just send me a message and I’ll forward it on to him.

This week I’m joined by Tom Murray, a friend, BBC Radio Solent freelancer, Saints AD Commentator, and Under the Lights Podcast Host. I saddled Tom with the unattractive prospect of discussing league and club finances along with Post-Brexit work permits and more, all with an eye on how Saints will be impacted going forward. Tom also walks us through the moments that stood out to him during the season and we do answer some listener questions as well, from midfielders to Italian Stallions.

Let us know what you think, and be sure to get in touch with Tom and me!
